Request: 'Twin' (39") Mattress! Or whole bed (Downtown Toronto) 1d - Hi there ~ Without long explanation, our elderly mother needs to change her sleeping arrangement. We need such a mattress - though if someone has a whole bed (with headboard/footboard - esp. wooden, with 4 posts, for hanging her things on!) that could be great. Many thanks in advance! Request: Large/XL KNEE BRACE (Downtown Toronto) 21d - Hi Folks, These things can be expensive and are often only needed for a brief time, then sit around for years. Anyone have one they don't need anymore? => I'm looking for a *Wraparound* OR perhaps *Hinged* type one preferably, though a simple, sturdy Compression sleeve would be better than nothing. Needs to be quite large b/c a) I'm a guy and b) I want to wear it over some leggings or even pants. Many thanks!
